Manna House Bakery

212 Grand St. New York, NY 10013 | Chinatown | 212-274-8816

Location Description:

This traditional Chinese bakery, hidden on a side street between Chinatown proper and Little Italy, offers a limited menu compared to other pastry shops in the area, and it's generally tourist-free. But at over 20 years old, the locally beloved Manna House Bakery doesn't need to do anything but what it does well. Especially popular are the flaky-crusted egg-custard tarts and the pineapple bun (bao) filled with custard, but it's hard to go wrong with a selection of sweet and savory baked goods ranging from buns filled with roast pork or red bean paste or bacon and scallion to sweet melon cakes, sesame balls, and chicken pie. Even the coffee is quite decent, and the bakery also serves hot and bubble teas. Space is certainly tight, and there's not much for ambiance, but there are places to sit and munch and sip before stepping back out into the bustle of Chinatown streets. --Diana Clarke
